Gregory Lane Hillman was born in Atlanta, Georgia, grew up in Akron, Ohio, but has strong family ties in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area not more than two hours from Akron.
With both of Lane's parents being All-American basketball players, the bets were on that he'd follow in their footsteps. Indeed a die-hard fan of the game of basketball, Lane instead carved out his own footsteps and developed an early passion for Theater - performing in local plays such as "Lord of the Flies" and "Titanic" in the Akron, Ohio area.
In 2004, while participating in a Thespian competition in Orlando, Florida, Lane met and signed on with his agent, Matt Fletcher and remains with him today. Lane, represented by Matt, is part of the Michael Greene and Associates talent roster located in Beverly Hills.
As a writer for Skyy Entertainment, Lane has an innate ability to capture the full essence of a story and in the most captivating way. He has penned several scripts for theatre as well as short films. His gift of creating some of the most provocative narratives are the direct result of his close walk with God and his personal dealings and compassion for people from all walks of life – those he has taught, counseled and helped over the years. Lane has already, at such a young age, done far more for the community around him than most do in a lifetime. He will no doubt leave an indelible mark in Hollywood as he sets out to make an impact in the lives of people all over the world through entertainment.
